Whether you are interested in taking just a few courses, pursuing one of our certificates or earning your associate of science with a telecommunications track, Pace University/NACTEL programs are open to anyone who wishes to participate (please see our Affirmative Action Policy).

To get started right away, all you need to do is:

  • Complete and submit an application online.
  • Be a high school graduate or have earned your GED.

Once you've done this, you can opt to start with either Computer Applications or the Academic Skills Seminar in your first semester. You'll take one of these classes in conjunction with the Online Seminar, a one-credit, two week course designed as an orientation to online learning in general, as well as the Blackboard 5 software that Pace uses to deliver its Web-based courses.

Jump Start Your Program

If you have a particularly strong background in math, you may want to consider taking the Math Skills Readiness Assessment. By scoring 85% or higher, you can bypass the Academic Skills Seminar and jump right into Technical Math.

Other Requirements

No matter which option you choose, you are considered non-matriculated until you have met the following requirements:

  • Pace has received and reviewed your high school transcripts or evidence of GED. If you are transferring credits into the program, Pace will also need to receive official college transcripts from you previous college(s).
  • Your prior college grade point average is a 2.0 or higher.

Since it does take some time to arrange for all official high school and college transcripts to be sent and reviewed, Pace does allow nonmatriculated students to take up to 24 credits over the course of three semesters. After that, you will need to be matriculated to continue on in the program.
